Reston Planning & Zoning Seeks to Fill Eight Spots

Town Square Park at Reston Town Center Do you have an interest in the future of Reston at this crucial time in its development as a transit-oriented community?

Then apply for a seat on the Reston Planning and Zoning Committee, which will have eight openings in 2014.  The 15-member Reston Planning and Zoning Committee  has five vacancies for three-year terms and three vacancies for one-year terms beginning on Jan 1.

Meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the Community Room, North  County Government Center, 12000 Bowman Towne Dr.

The P & Z committee’s primary focus is the appropriate development of land use in Reston’s Planned Residential Community, and Reston Town Center, as well as county and state ordinances . The P&Z Committee is an advisory body without statutory authority; however, it is looked to and listened to by local government authorities for its opinions and advice on land use matters.

From a P & Z news release:

There is a vital need for community input into the continuing development and
redevelopment of Reston. There is an equally important need to ensure that development
organizations be treated with consideration given to their resources and rights. While the
initial residential development activity is fairly complete, future actions will more
probably focus on redevelopment activity.
Community awareness and interest, plus accurate and timely information, are
necessary for the orderly development, and now, redevelopment of Reston.
If you are  interested in volunteering to serve on the Reston P&Z Committee, please fill out an application and return it with your resume, as per the instructions on the application, no later than Monday, Dec. 16, 2013 at 5:00 p.m.

Applications may be downloaded  from the P&Z page located in the Explore Reston Section of or from the P&Z website:
